Berkmann's Wine Cellars


Kanu has an enviable reputation among South Africa’s leading Chenin Blanc producers, with a crisp, dynamic unoaked version and a complex, succulent Wooded Chenin. Since the arrival of winemaker Richard Kershaw in 2003, the rest of the range had received the same attention, both in the winery and in the press. The diverse terroir of Stellenbosch provides excellent sites for many grape varieties, from the familiar – restrained Chardonnay, peppery Shiraz – to the not-so-familiar, like the Hungarian Hárslevelü that appears in Kia-Ora, Kanu’s five-star botrytis sticky.
